Woke up in San Simeon to a beautiful day!

Posted Image

Have been on an adventure here, exploring the beach, the pier, Cambria and took the evening tour of Hearst Castle. There was a threat of rain, and there was some rain, but very little fell during our travel times.

Here's a couple pics,

Took about a 15 mile detour

This road lead us to...pie!

wandering past the pie

we looked back at the beach.

managed to get through traffic

and got back to the coast HWY
Posted Image

this is typically what happened... if you were under this cloud, you got a little something. We were on the road and were completely dry!
Posted Image

Maybe we had good timing but we never even had to use the rain gear (2 minutes under a cloud and you rode right out again). It's actually really warm in riding gear and the roads were dry again in minutes.

Now we're holed up in the redwoods for a couple days, looking forward to the RTE in Big Sur on Saturday!

Now that's my kind of a RR, Thanks!

I hate it when the voices in my head go silent ... I never know what those bastards are planning ...

Rained last night from maybe midnight to 4 or 5 a.m. Good chance I hear that it could rain again tonight, but it was nice all day!

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Subscribed to be sure.

You are in a beautiful place. What I wouldn't give to ride to Giant Sequoia, then Kings Canyon, and on to Yosemite.
